Summer vacation has come and gone — it's already August, our (not really) favorite time of the year when many of us head back to the classroom. If you've been eyeing a laptop for your daily schooling needs, there's no better way to catch the attention of your peers than by grabbing Samsung's flashy fiesta-red Galaxy Chromebook. And today, you can save big on both generations of these attractive Chromebooks — up to $300 off the premium model.
Samsung makes some of the best Chromebooks you can buy today. From last year's ultra-high-end Galaxy Chromebook and its 4K display to the super affordable Chromebook 4, there's a little something for everyone. It seems like it might be time to add another model to the list, as an all-new Chromebook from Samsung popped up on the company's website today: the Galaxy Chromebook Go.
Samsung's Galaxy Chromebook has a lot going for it with its slim Pixelbook-style design, 4K OLED screen, and capable processor. But its battery life isn't great, and at an MSRP of $999, it hasn't sold very well. If you're into the overall package but sticker shock has stopped you from diving in, now's your chance: the Galaxy Chromebook is currently $300 off.
Samsung surprised us at CES this year with the Galaxy Chromebook, a high-end convertible Chrome OS laptop whose thin, angular body is awfully reminiscent the original Pixelbook. It's on sale today. But Google's got its own new laptop bearing the Pixel family name in the Pixelbook Go, which you can spec all the way up to a 4K display and Intel Core i7 processor. If you're on the hunt for a premium Chrome device, these two should be high on your list, but which should you buy? Let's discuss.
The Galaxy Chromebook is probably the most interesting Chromebook to launch since the original Google Pixelbook. And, in many ways, that's because it represents something of a spiritual successor to Google's beloved premium ultraportable.
Speaking to Kan Liu, senior director of product management on Chrome OS, that's because it really is. The Galaxy Chromebook takes the things that made Google's Pixelbook great—amazing portability, a top-notch display, and a premium processor—and kicks all of them up a notch. The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is thinner, lighter, (much) faster, and has a screen that's considerably nicer to look at than the Pixelbook's. But it packs the same ultra-thin, fully convertible form factor that made the Pixelbook such a popular choice among Chrome OS enthusiasts.
